Description

While nothing close to a travel destination, this little park is a great place to squeeze in a morning or afternoon ride. Very well maintained by Eastern Virginia MTB Association, it's a dense network of trails with the intermittent trail feature. Add to that a high quality freeride/BMX section and you've got yourself a nice little playground.

The route displayed on this trail is more or less arbitrary. This trail basically just outlines the perimeter of the park for a rough idea of the size. However, there is easily 6-8+ miles of trails branching this way and that, with the riding possibilities being near endless.

East of Suffolk and south of Norfolk, this is pretty much the spot. The terrain doesn't offer much, but it does about as much as possible given the circumstances. Look out for hikers, dogs, BMXers and people just playing around in the woods. Most of all have fun and stay safe.

They did a great job working with the space available as this is a hidden gem in the middle of city hustle and bustle

One part of the terrain park. These are up to 5 foot doubles with a nice gap. A lot of fun if that's your thing.

Some jumps and ramps for very experienced riders. The trail leading to these are fun with some tabletop and small ramps. Single trails were very wet
